A RED MAPLE

The maple tree in our front yard is growing redder and redder as the temperatures at night go lower and lower.


More of the leaves are changing (and falling) every day.  It seems like one could stand in front of the tree and watch the red creep in.


The color offers a nice contrast to our brilliant blue sky.


If you look at this picture carefully, or perhaps blow it up by clicking on it, you'll spot a crescent of an early-rising moon up and to the right.

My favorite fall tree.

I especially like the red tree against the blue sky. There is still few roses hanging on at my place.

Our leaves have already changed here in Oregon, and I can just barely make out the moon.

Maples make such beautiful transformations. And yes, I spotted the crescent moon.

Nothing can match a maple tree at fall time!
